Next week the CSCP will be holding an awareness raising week for Safer Sleeping and ICON – ‘Babies Cry – You Can Cope’.

During the week we will be launching materials to support professionals in delivering safe sleep and ICON messages to parents. This includes a new multi-agency guidance for professionals. Each day we will publish a 5 Minute Briefing with key messages and materials and will share messages on social media.

Briefing Session

We will be holding an online practitioner briefing session on safer sleeping on Thursday 23 September 2021, 13:00 – 14:30.

The briefing will focus on safer sleep advice and the vital role all practitioners have in sharing the message with families. There will be opportunity to reflect on existing knowledge and ensure all partner agencies are sharing the same advice consistently across Cumbria. Links to resources and advice for professionals will also be provided.

There will also be a brief overview of ICON, a programme that provides information to parents and professionals about infant crying and how to cope.

This is an important public health message, in which we all have a part to play, and its impact on the safety of babies and young children cannot be underestimated.

The briefing is suitable for all practitioners who work with families with children under the age of 5.
